This place is true high quality steakhouse. The food is excellent and the service first-rate. Each time I have been there the food quality is consistently superb, but t does come at a price. Great place but understand its on the pricey side.

Excellent cocktails for my 35 year old daughter excellent Diet Coke for me! Restaurant very swish. Our waiter Jonathan was perfect. He advised me to have the Ruth's... More

Once again, we had the pleasure of going to dinner at RC and as has been the case multiple times prior - it was heads and shoulders above the rest in terms of service, quality of food, and ambiance. Got a special birthday treat also for dessert. Service by Raquel (or was it Rachel) gasp* can't recall but she was... More

Visited Ruth's most recently after a Wizards game. Decided to sit on the bar area side. They were closing in about 15 minutes. The waitress must've informed our party of that information at least three times after ordering. I ordered non stuffed chicken as I normally do. When it arrived at the table it was stuffed. I informed her I... More

Ruth´s delivers top quality steaks, top ingredients, full of flavor and very juicy. The place was quiet, elegant and sober. The service was excellent and fast. The Mac & Cheese entree was also delicious. Price was fair.

I have not visited a Ruth Chris in 25 years and the food was as excellent as I remembered it. My steak was perfectly done, probably the best I can remember having. Service was good but not exceptional, probably because we ate in the bar area and were waited on by the bartender,. His primary focus was on his customers... More

A RC is a RC in any city. Dim lighting, dark shutters, delicious food, and expensive prices but we love it. What I didn't understand on our recent visit on 7/31/2016 at 7p was the lack of AC in the restaurant? It was warm and muggy outside and inside as well. A delicious meal overshadowed by the humidity in the... More

What a wonderful dining experience! My wife and I went to meet our son and his wife here and the service and food were absolutely top notch! Be prepared for some higher prices, but absolutely worth it for the service and quality.

I was worried when I read some of the reviews but we had a great experience! The steaks were cooked exactly how we requested them. Watch the plates...when they say they're hot, they're HOT! The bread and the salad were good as well. The wait staff were very professional.
